I am working from the dining room today. I’ve booked events and people for January, April, and March. Publicity is in place for much of what is so far on the books for Winter/Spring. From where I am sitting, I can see the snow tumble-dancing a complicated free-form choreography from six windows surrounding me. I have a hot cup of tea beside me and, oh beautiful bow on top of this gift, just the right music is playing to accompany this space and mood. Music that is soothing, is lyrically beautiful, is alto grace and comfort.
A small green wreath of hope,
four candles symbolizing the weeks of willingness to remain a bit longer in the darkness,
before we awaken and walk in the light of Christ.
In this time, we prepare to make way through the clutter to our own "Bethlehem,"
holding space in the circle to believe that something new is possible ...
